Red Sox | Daniel Bard clicking

Boston Red Sox RP Daniel Bard worked back-to-back games for the first time this week with Triple-A Pawtucket, and he felt like something finally clicked. He retired the side in order on only 10 pitches (eight strikes) in his second consecutive day of work Monday, July 2. "It puts me in a more athletic position, which I did naturally for a long time without thinking about it," Bard said. "For whatever reason, starting and trying to perfect mechanics, I got away from it and now I'm getting back to that delivery and 100 percent trusting it."

Bard said he stopped thinking about his mechanics during his outing Sunday, July 1. Before his outing Monday, he had allowed 10 earned runs and 12 hits (one homer) while walking 10, hitting four batters and striking out 14 in 12 1/3 innings.
